    Char-broiled chicken or fish tacos, chili relleno burrito, chips, salsa, tortilla soup, its ALL good. Service is excellent as well. Decent beer selection and awesome chili-pineapple margaritas.

    Only the corn tortillas are vegetarian (flour has lard), pinto beans are veggie (blk are not), special tomata sauce for enchiladas is only vegetarian sauce. So good!!!

    The chile relleno burrito with carnitas is incredible--and a great deal. The best house margaritas around. Ask for a booth by the windows for Carlsbad people watching.

    The bar has full service most days. The Margarita's are amazing! They have mild salsa if you ask for it :-). Best drinks place in Carlsbad!

    Everything! Chilled relleno burrito is amazing along with the carnitas tostada. Ask for the taller for a dollar margarita

    Vegetarians, the "tomata" sauce is the only vegetarian option. The pinto beans are only veggie beans, and corn tortillas only veggie tortilla.

    Try the Sopa Del Mar. It's my new favorite! Light, healthy and very filling. Delicious and unique flavor.
